Over March 1 to March 8 community-minded Vanderbilt University students returned to Pittsburgh to volunteer with Gwen’s Girls, a North Side nonprofit that provides preventative services for at-risk girls. This is the second year we provided free lodging for the group at Unitarian House. The Vandy Alternative Spring Break program was started in 1987 and sends students around the country for service work during spring break. On Monday March 3 at we hosted a Pizza Open House courtesy of John Engberg, Gail Ward, and Kate and Mark Tomlinson, and the Board of Trustees. Was a fun evening and everyone got to know each other a little better. Learn more about Vanderbilt’s Alternative Spring Break at
